In India where most collectors don't have access to the really rare cars. Our very own micro environment seems to be developing. For instance i see increasingly, more and more value in rare vintages offered for 20+ lakh values then say the common classics like impalas etc. These are typically lower than the international value of these cars. However very few people except the hardcore collectors show interest in acquiring such cars. For new collectors The market here is driven by peoples perception of certain brands. Currently 50's Mercedes seem to be in Vogue. I see cars being traded at crazy prices that simply cannot be sustained going forward. But then to each his own.
Not only 50's mercedes but all mercedes models including 115 and 116 ,
The same is being fuelled up in the case of biscaynes and impalas following the multimillion price sale of the unique IMPALA

Did anyone see the last Monday (25th June) episode of Chasing Classic Cars on Discovery Turbo? A beautiful 1932 Chrysler Roadster was sold for $350000. It was 1 of 100 produced, what a beautiful car

Yes, and what was very amusing is the owner had stored the car together with another Chrysler, off all the places in a 'Bank Vault' !!!

In my view a reasonable valuation for this would be in the range 12 to 15 lakhs

That would not cover cost of restoration. But yes, it is grossly overpriced.
But the devil lies in paying attention to details. The ad says Roadmaster, does it look like one?

Haritji, the guys who claims to have restored this claims that they have spent around 7-8 lakhs for restoration.please note that this is not the professional detailed restoration that some cars have been through

I heard it fetched 37 smackers! Then there'll be restoration to come...

And, as far as that Buick Super Eight goes, 85 lakhs does seem ambitious. But, if it's really as good in real life (since pictures can be misleading), he might get someone, in a hurry, even shelling out 30, going by the 20-25 one hears regularly about them.

Difficult to put a thumb on these dynamics, Wasif! The evaluation pattern is rather subjective. Which is why there's no evolved insurance parameters for vintages and classics in India, yet, which is telling!

Someone had mentioned cars becoming classics and collectible if they had low production numbers...

So would the Maruti Zen Carbon and Steel 2 doors become classics or collectible in the future? only 300 or so were produced in total.

or the VW transporter T3 4x4 syncro RHD? only 2108 were produced as per internet records.

just asking.

Are they exciting cars to own or just limited production items.

Cars needs to have a bit of excitement in my book to become collectable !

Exactly! Hence the question, but then high production nos. although for an exciting car, would make it collectible?
